Equal opportunity employment
2019 - December, Latest news
We're committed to equal opportunity in employment policy and procedures. Selection or promotion is based solely on applicants' suitability.
To help us maintain that we have just launched a new recruitment page on an inclusive site called Vercida.
Vercida stands for:
Values, Equality, Respect, Culture, Inclusion, Diversity, Accessibility
We can use this site to showcase who we are, what jobs we have and the working environment we maintain to attract a rich variety of people.
We want to be diverse in the people we employ because a diverse workforce promotes productivity. Our staff reflect the people we serve, which helps us to give you a better range of services.
Our HR policies are designed to ensure every colleague feels included and valued. We challenge stereotypes, have a zero tolerance towards hate incidents, and we offer inclusive recruitment systems to allow all candidates to apply with an equal opportunity to work for us.
Two new PA Housing colleagues have already shared their experiences of our organisation on the site.
"My start coincided with the launch of the ‘PA Way’ workshops, which gave a feel for how the cultures and values throughout the organisation are being aligned," explained one team member. "I had been interested in working for PA Housing since attending a recruitment open day last summer," wrote another. "I was impressed with the commitment and dedication that I saw from staff members that I met on that day. I have previously worked in the housing management field for 15 years and PA Housing looked like a good next step for my housing career."
"PA Housings purpose, vision and values strongly resonated with my own values," they added. "The support I have received from members of my team and my line manager since starting the role has been fantastic and I have been made to feel very welcome. I am very much enjoying the role and looking to develop further within the PA Housing."
It's wonderful to see we're already getting positive feedback on Vercida. As an organisation, PA Housing is committed to a culture of respect and acceptance of difference, ensuring all colleagues feel they are able to be their whole selves at work and have the ability to thrive while working here. This enables us all to focus on providing safe, secure homes and excellent services to our residents."Emma Macnish, Head of HR & Communications
